You Down With DCP's?

   I'm home from Rome! The hubs and I had a wonderful time walking around the city and enjoying all the sites. Everywhere we went it was like we had to just stand there for a few minutes and absorb it all. To be in the Roman Coloseum where the Emperor Nero once stood and where gladiator games and more took place...it was simply amazing.

   Something that wasn't so amazing about Rome...DROP CROTCH PANTS! Since I've lived in Italy for 3 years I don't know if this trend really made it into the spotlight in the states, but this is one trend that I didn't try and I probably never will. Everywhere I looked in Rome there were drop crotch pants, we'll call them DCP's. They were on young people, old people, men, women, children....all around.


Pants



Yes, not the kind that are just a little baggy, but the whole crotch is just disconnecting itself like it's trying to run away. I'm sure there is someone out there who can pull these off but I look ridiculous in DCP's. It's obvious they weren't made to flatter any part of the body. 

American Apparel pants


   Even though I've now seen my share of baggy crotches in Rome, these women do have some great shoes. I spotted a few, completely genuine, Christian Louboutins, Pradas, Miu Miu's and more. I would sit down and "shoe watch" as everyone passed by and now want to kick myself for not taking pictures. 

   I will probably break up my Rome pics for you all into a few separate posts because there is just so much to show and tell. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
